Mercedes could've cranked the power all the way up and I don't know if it would've added any excitement. I think the track design itself is the problem. I'm sure they were looking for any races to fill in the schedule, but I don't see where this one added anything to the sport (other than oil money). My suggestion which will never happen is to have sprinklers wet down the track for the entire race. If the track isn't going to conducive to passing then at least let there be a chance of a spinout or someone sliding. My wife and I just started to get into F1 this year. We are amazed at how lopsided the competition is for the most part. We have remarked that it is odd to watch a sport and to have the broadcasters barely focus on the lead drivers. Hamilton was in the lead a few races ago, and you barely heard his name mentioned. Of course he was ten seconds ahead of second place because that's how it goes when he races for the most part. Hopefully the next set of engine changes and/or car changes bring the competition closer. Seeing Russell go from being in the back of the pack every race to look like an absolute stud really shows how far Mercedes is ahead with their cars. On a side note, as a new fan it is really hard to find anything to like or dislike with the drivers. Other than Riccardo and Norris, they all seem like robots and are uninterested in interviews. I guess I'm use to seeing Nascar guys flip each other and yell at each other when they crash. Leclerc braking too late lead to Verstappen wrecking two races ago, and it looked like they walked back to garage together like best friends. Maybe that is the way things are done in Europe, and I just haven't gotten use to it.
